Paige VanZant Recalls Talks At WWE Headquarters

Paige VanZant has recalled talks with WWE around a year ago about potentially joining the company.

The MMA star signed with AEW earlier this month. Speaking on Throwing Down with Renee Paquette and Miesha Tate, VanZant noted that she had previously visited WWE headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut to discuss a deal.

Noting that WWE’s plan for her was very different to what she’s doing with AEW, VanZant said:

“I did know my career would take me to pro wrestling eventually. I wasn’t sure what venue that would be, if it would be WWE or AEW. I’ve been a fan of both, I made it out about a year ago to WWE headquarters. They had a different plan for what they wanted for me.

“With AEW, I’m so excited they were happy to partner with me and let me continue to fight MMA and do bare knuckle boxing. They’re on board to build my career, build me as a wrestler, and let me be myself.”

VanZant had previously stated that her AEW deal allowed her to keep an open-ended contract with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. She has also confirmed that she has definitely not retired from MMA.
